“They'd come in and order yards of fabric at up to $39.99 a yard, stuff it in their man purses and leave without paying,” Marshall said. “Oh, gosh, they could wipe out a whole section of boas in seconds…”
The company that was offering the doll earlier has decided to not produce it, after pressure from Apple and from Job's family. It was to be one foot tall, dressed in black turtleneck and rimless glasses. The company had been almost ready to ship the dolls worldwide next month, but voluntarily decided not to, and will return any pre-order money.
Smoking a joint from time to time won't damage the lungs, even after years of drug use, according to a study led by UCSF researchers that disproves one of the major concerns about marijuana - that smoking it must be just as risky as lighting up a cigarette.
The study, results of which were published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that the lung capacity of people who smoked marijuana was not diminished by regular toking, even among those who smoked once or twice a week.
Only heavy marijuana users - those who smoked 20 or more joints a month - saw a negative impact on the pulmonary system, but that level of marijuana use is unusual, researchers said. In fact, they said, it may be that marijuana smoke doesn't affect lung function the way tobacco does simply because people don't smoke as many joints as they do cigarettes.
An international team of scientists, including researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, describe how burning frankincense (resin from the Boswellia plant) activates poorly understood ion channels in the brain to alleviate anxiety or depression. This suggests that an entirely new class of depression and anxiety drugs might be right under our noses.
